From Hwy 101 its about 15 mi to the trailhead (2 mi beyond the Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort). Along the way, the Salmon Cascades stop is a very short walk to the overlook of these cascades. Didn't see any salmon jumping, but a nice view anyway. The trail to Sol Duc Falls is 0.8 mi and relatively flat. Although... More

Easy hike well worth the effort. Can get some great pictures here. Looks different at different times of day.

The falls still roared, but I wondered what it would be like with a normal rainfall year, rather than the drier year this summer. That would be worth another trip to see.

The perfect after lunch hike. The trail was lightly used when we were on it so it was almost like being alone in the woods. The trail is well maintained, and we enjoyed being in the forest and the falls was worth the walk.

Sol Duc Falls, in Olympic National Park, is about a 1 mile walk from the trailhead. The walk itself is through a wonderland of old growth forest. More colors of green than you ever thought existed are on this gentle path. Giant ferns, moss covered trees, streams and profound quiet can be found in this forest. The falls run fairly... More

A great choice in Olympic National park for a reasonably easy hike. Very scenic walk, and beautiful falls when you reach the end. Definitely recommend this trail if you visit the park.

Make sure the sun will be in the right position for your visit, and just go! Pro Tip: Have someone in your party wear a read sweatshirt or jacket and have them stand on the bridge when you photograph the falls, the rainbow and bridge - that way you’ll get a person in the shot for scale, and the red...

We went to Sol Duc just to see the resort and the falls. The resort looks clean, smells of sulfur, the pools look like normal pools. We did not stay there so that is as much as I can say on that. The hike though was one of the most beautiful. We liked it better than the Hoh. The hike... More

The hike to Sol Duc Falls is an easy mile. It was just right for our 6 year old. The trail is pretty and interesting, and once you get to the falls you can dip your toes in. Very nice hike for anyone.

This was a very nice and easy hike to the falls, many trails branch off from the falls, we hiked up the river and enjoyed a picnic by the water, some light exploring and an easy hike back to the parking lot.
